1 John 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have before Him: If we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we already possess what we have asked of Him.

If we truly believe these verses, the next thing we can do is get things ready. Whatever you’re believing God for, prepare yourself to receive it.

If you’re believing God for a new car, clean out and make space for the car in the garage. If you’re believing God for a new house, start packing non-essential items. If you’re believing God for a spouse, start preparing yourself to share your time, space, and resources. If you’re believing God for a child, start shopping for baby things. We don’t need to wait until we’re in the process to get things ready. If God said we’ll have our request, it’s time to get things ready.

It may be another year or so before the manifestation of our request, but we’re responding to what we’re in faith for. Allow the Spirit of God to lead you on how to get things ready. We want to be in faith, not acting foolishly.
